This book ranks in my top 10! It's an excellent "listen"!! You are immersed in the fragrant grace and beauty of the South. I would love to have a great-aunt like Aunt Tootie!!
I laughed out loud as the "cat-fight" unfolded during the Garden Party!!
Excellent performance by Jenna Lamia. I have also listened to her reading of "The Help"
This book will make you laugh and cry!!!
With an 8-hour drive in front of me, I was looking forward to listening to this book. After an hour, I turned it off. Maybe it got better ... I'll never know. It was so full of cliches and a story that didn't hold together, that silence was a better option. The narration was fine, it was everything else that was slow torture.
I really loved all the colorful characters. Ms Jenna Lamia does a wonderful job bring them all to life. Her performance is perfection.
Omg... When Cece took that bra all over town and snapped those photos I laughted out loud.
There are many highlights though. Cece first trip to the beach, her visit to the old folks home, the "Garden Pary Brawl" and many others.
This is a wonderful story about how love can heal past pain and how a family can come together out of an unlikly group of peope. I do recommend this book to anyone who loves a story that is filled with compassion and wisdom for one less fortunate.
Touching, Sweet, Funny
The mason jar the the spatula. You'll have to wait for it, but will be rolling on the floor with laughter.
ALL of them -
The Aunt's housekeeper.
After hearing her read 'The Help' and now 'Saving CeeCee Honeycutt', Jenna is now my favorite narrator. She portrays each character so vividly that you would think you were sitting in a screenless movie theatre. Kudos to her. As indicated, this is truly a lovely story with some incredibly funny parts.
Entertaining, Intriguing, Creative
The relationships between Ceecee and all of the wonderful women in her life.
Aunt Tootie. Jenna was able, through just her voice, to pull the sugary warmth from that character's soul.
This was only my second Audio listen and I am hooked thanks to the wonderful performance by Jenna Lamia.
One of the best audiobooks so far.
Equal to The Help. But different. It was truly enjoyable to listen to.
I loved hearing the southern lines which are so pure to how southerners use to speak.
this book brought me to laughing a lot. Very well written and preformed.
I got this on a whim a few months ago but don't consider this genre my usual fare so it sat in my library for quite awhile. Of course, once I started I couldn't stop listening so I'd have to make excuses just to drive around listening. The story is heartwarming and the narrator brings the book to life! Jenna Lamia absoultely amazing and I will definitely look into more books she narrates.
Yes, it was full of adventure! Really fun to listen to.
I highly recommend it.
Follow your heart
Every character in this book was special to me, important in a different way. But I most identified with Ceecee, her struggle to make sense of things, to understand things as they were around her, and ultimately, her need to flee and get answers.
When she ultimately refused to go
Every single one. From beginning to end.
Every time I listen, the story, performances, have the same affect on me. For me, it is a powerful book about how even a little person's life is important enough to be saved from evil, harshness, or corruption, do not give up, do not stop trying. There will be a way for you too.
